As a long standing member of the Northwest DJ community, the name ‘Gene Lee’ has become synonymous with quality, forward thinking music. Large venue or small, Gene’s sets are always intimate, heartfelt and his energy on stage is rarely matched. His eclectic taste in electronic grooves has left him on the cutting edge of every genre he plays, making him a long-time favorite of electronic music connoisseurs worldwide.
As a Producer, Gene maintains a very busy schedule. Not limited by genre, Gene’s appreciation for all types of music has given him the ability to work with a variety of artists from wide array of genres. His collaborations with artists include: The Lost Boys, Sean Majors, Donald Glaude, The Lawnchair Generals, Jon Lee and Wesley Holmes.
After spending endless hours in the studio with long time friend, Sean Majors, the two decided to create the record label, Pound Music as a way to output their studio creations. After launching at the beginning of 2007, Pound Music has maintained a steady schedule of releases. By consistently infiltrating playlists and topping the charts of some of the worlds most renowned DJs, Pound Music has made its mark on the global dance music community.
In 2011 Gene Lee partnered up with longtime friend, Wesley Holmes for several collaborations. Their love for the newly evolving genre Nu-Disco prompted them to make a studio mix which encapsulated their favorite songs. “Nu-Phase” generated over 20,000 downloads in a few weeks time and is still popular with Nu-Disco fans today.
If you don’t know Flammable’s Wesley Holmes, you should. And if you do, you know Wes will be serving the children gorgeous house music with fat, chunky basslines for days.
I downloaded Wesley’s new mix “Resistance4” this weekend, co-produced by his eminence and homie’s homie Gene Lee, to my phone and found myself screaming in my car when the bass hit. Great stuff–GET IT. Love these boys…among Seattle’s finest and a credit to our burgeoning electronic music community.
